6:51 am
two, forget about game one. we're back on home ice tonight. and, you know, they've been playing under the gun biggest game of the year scenario for a long time. i expect great things just as we saw time and time again down the stretch. >> you and i were talking about off camera how great braydon has been, washington capitols goaltender, really unable to solve him. just keep throwing the puck at the net, maybe something good happens? >> that's what do you have do. put the puck at the net. get in his space, et cetera, et cetera. surprise me, i think do. get the credit perhaps what he's doing due, he has good team ahead of him. but he really showed his worth in the two games. >> we put a loft rubber at him, we have to keep it up. >> the flyers from their perspective, stars are not quite shown up offensively, claude, jake, did have goal in game two, but again, generate that offense, been kind of tough there is washington capitol team not only good
6:52 am
with goaltending, but de ends i havely solid. >> a lot has to go to the new coach that brought in barry. he has the superstars playing whole game, not just in the offensive zone. big pat in the back to the new coach, the new scenario that he brought in. but, you know, our guys, they just have to find a way they've been stars, and a lot of teams, a lot of coaches that have tried to shut them down, tried to figure out how to shut them down. they had to play through it, not just this series, but they've been stars a long time, they'll finds a way. claude too good a player to not to get points on the board and the rest of them, as well. >> you have been around the organization for quite a while. and you know, you new ed snider very well, you're president of the alumni association, i'm sure you worked with him closely. what kind of man? obviously the first game since his death? >> well, i think all of the tributes that have come in, you know, speak volumes, and
